The Charles Bridge is one of the neatest bridges that I have ever walked across, and try walking across it at night when all kinds of things are happening with dance troups, mimes, etc. The Bridge began construction in the mid fourteenth century by order of one of the greatest Bohemian Kings, Charles IV, the Holy Roman Emperor. And it wasn't complete until sometime in the 15th Century.

The Charles Bridge is probably Prague's most famous attraction. Along its entire stone length you can find 18th century statues of various saints as well as artists and peddlers plying their wares. At either end you're also likely to see beggars, prostrating themselves on the ground for a few Czech Crowns. In my travels only the Rialto Bridge in Venice bears any resemblance to the Charles Bridge.

You can't not cross Charles Bridge if you're in Prague. It should be an initiation to the city, and with good reason: despite the packed crowds, it's a very pleasant and enjoyable stroll. Cross at midday for the least crowds, and then come back in the hour before sunset for a glorious view of a sparkling river and a truly golden city - including the castle, which will glow red, gold, and yellow in the setting sun. I was intoxicated by the atmosphere, and charmed by the performers and artists - who won't bother you, but humbly play on in hopes of a few crowns in their hats. Some may dismiss this as a gimmicky tourist trap, but I heartily disagree.Recommended for:Local Culture

Walking on Charles Bridge is not to miss experience in Prague. The bridge is stunning by the Vltava river, especially at night. The bridge is 621 meters long and nearly 10 meters wide, resting on 16 arches shielded by ice guards. The bridge is decorated by a continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries, most of them baroque-style. The most of them are now replaced with replicas. It is very busy during the day with painters, jewelry sellers and travelers, but walking on it is definitely one of the must things to do in Prague.

Walking over the Charles Bridge is one of Prague's level one experiences. In other words, it's introductory, but it's absolutely important to do it, and the statues lining it are true works of art. If you can, bring someone to kiss. If you are feeling more adventurous you can pretend to be Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2, which was shot here.
